This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
To celebrate my 10 millionth download here on MTS, I wanted to make something I think a lot of people would like, and also something a bit older, to signify the great years that I've been on this wonderful site. So I present to you the classic 1973 Volkswagen Beetle. Hope you guys like it, and many thanks to all the people who download, thank and comment my items! It is very much appreciated!

It will cost your sims $7,000 for this history making machine. It has three recolorable parts; the body, the outer part of the wheels, and the interior. It can be found in the vehicles section. This is also is updated for the latest patch/Pets.

Enjoy!





Includes 6 preset colors:


UV Mapping example:


Polygon Counts:
Faces: 17,064 , Vertices: 27,820

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Default More Classic Cars
Hi,

since I consider you as the best creator around, I dare to ask you for more classic cars, please, please, please!

Especially a HUPP MOBIL would be great! My father in law owned two of them until he passed away, my wife grew up in them!

All the best,

Dude! I had this exact car in the '80s - yellow, just like the preview pic! Fun car; maybe not as fun as my 1967 MGB, 1999 Mazda Miata or 2003 Porsche Boxter, but quick and good on gas. Thanks for bringing back some fun memories and adding a little more excitement and realism to my game. As always, you RAWK.
